The Toymaker spreads Christmas joy with 11 paper toys to pop out, fold, glue together, and play with! With their beautiful, antique style, these toys are sure to enchant both children and adults. Leave St. Nick his milk and cookies in “Santa's Treat Box.” Decorate the Christmas tree with the four lovely “Little Angels.” Create a magical “Winter Wonderland,” complete with moving parts-like an ice skating penguin. And no Christmas would be complete without a handsome paper “Nutcracker,” with arms and a jaw that move.

For the price on sale, this is an amazing paper craft book for the holidays! I bought many and gave them away as gifts and for my children to make as Christmas decorations. They love making these. The colors and pictures are very appealing. Our favorites are the pencil topper spinning ballerina, two Christmas boxes, and Countdown to Christmas. The nutcracker and snowman stand nicely. And the boxes you can use to put treats or little presents. The winter wonderland is fun to spin the penguin and move the gingerbread couple.
The only downside is that when you pop out some of the paper toys, they easily rip the actually toy if you are not extra careful. And we have to use tape, as glue sticks and glue is not strong enough. I bet that Zots or double sided tape would work great.
Marilyn Scott-Waters is an amazing artist. Her work is intricate and detailed, but at its heart is elegant simplicity. The creativity of a bygone era. Her new 'The Toymaker's Christmas' is a wonderful book. It's filled with beautiful Christmas images that you or your children can easily assemble. Set up an entire holiday scene with an ice skating penguin, or make festive boxes to fill with your homemade goodies for friends and neighbors. And those are only 2 possibilities from this book. My 9yo daughter and I love everything Marilyn creates. Her projects are not complex, but the end results are simply outstanding. Gather the family 'round the kitchen table, put on some holiday music, and enjoy a new Christmas tradition together!
I've often made Marilyn Scott-Waters's paper toys, printing them from her website. I think they are fantastic and share them with children and adults alike. I recently purchased her latest book, "Christmas Paper Toys You Can Make Yourself". I am now convinced that I need to buy all of her paper toy books! It is a lovely collection of paper toys and little gift boxes, printed with vibrant colors on some of the very best paper stock. The book contains eleven paper toys, from a simple "Secret Christmas Box" to a more intricate "Winter Wonderland". My lucky friends, from neighborhood children to young adults in college, will be receiving Marilyn's paper toys this Christmas. The toys are sturdy enough to be tucked away and brought out year after year to adorn the Christmas tree. Now, like a kid in a candy store....which one do I choose for myself?
